Shakur Stevenson, Jared ‘The Real Big Baby’ Anderson, and Keyshawn Davis stopped by a school in New Jersey to talk to the kids there and inspire them to be their best version. All three athletes can potentially become mega-stars in the future, so Top Rank is clever in getting them out in front of the public while promoting this weekend’s card. Below is the press release from Top Rank.
